• Liebherr HomeDialog System



• What is the HomeDialog system?

• Liebherr’s HomeDialog system, as it has been known until present, has allowed e.g. a NoFrost
• freezer with Premium control system situated in the basement to be controlled using the electronic
• display in the door of a combined fridge-freezer. Now, starting 2008, the new, extended
• HomeDialog system will enable not only networking a freezer, as in the past, but up to 6 additional,
• external Liebherr appliances. The appliances are indicated in the display of the combined fridge-
• freezer with a PremiumPlus electronic control system, permitting their convenient control. Among
• the Liebherr appliances capable of being networked are wine cabinets, freezers, refrigerators and
• combined fridge-refrigerators.


• What advantages does the HomeDialog system offers customers?

• All the functions of the appliances can be accessed and conveniently set on the display, e.g.:

• • temperature setting
• • SuperFrost mode ON/OFF
• • DuraFreeze mode ON/OFF
• • alarm acknowledgement

• Furthermore, the HomeDialog system allows the functions of say the freezer to be constantly
• monitored: 2009_1_Information zu HomeDialogSystem_en LEX

• • Temperature display: Indicates that the freezer is operating normally, i.e. failure-free and so
• the food is stored safe and sound inside.
• • Door alarm: Especially useful should children fetch an iced-lolly and forget to close the
• freezer door properly.
• • Power failure: Should there be power failure in the basement, this is displayed on the
• refrigerator in the kitchen.
• • Temperature alarm: Is also displayed on the appliance, e.g. in the kitchen.


• How does the HomeDialog system work?

• This system always needs at least two appliances: a refrigerator with the display in the
• door and another Liebherr appliance with HomeDialog capability.

• The refrigerator in the kitchen is the master appliance because it can be used to control
• as many as six other appliances, these being the slave appliances.


• To enable master and slave to communicate, one HBM PLC
• home bus module per appliance is needed. There are two kinds
• of module: a master module being needed for the refrigerator
• with electronic display in the door and a slave module for the other
• appliances.

• The data (control commands, current temperature data, door alarm etc.) are transmitted using the
• power line. That is to say, no complicated cable routing is required. The data packages are
• modulated onto the power supply line. To enable the appliances to communicate with one another,
• they have to be connected to the same power supply line.
